pretty sure its a result of the choice of shift knob that i have
when i go to reverse i hit the surrounding trim

the other one is that when you "punch" the shifter knob on it hits the drive shaft
you have to file down the back end a lil bit as well mine was scraping the driveshaft when driving
did i miss install it possibly i wiggled around stuff and kept everything bolted up underneath
